Delicious! I’m fast becoming a fan of this style. Cloudy golden body, thick persistent white head. Taste of straw, sweetness, but not exactly honey. Dry finish - very nice. My first brew from DuPont, will definitely try some more.

Cork reads "2004" Pours evenly cloudy gold with a white head that receeds quickly and leaves a thick lace on the way down. Nose carries a slight tone of yeast with a slight sweet flair. Taste is superbly smooth. It says it is made with honey, but I get very little sweetness or honey flavor on the palate except on the end. Though I find as it got warmer the taste was smoother and a touch sweeter. Mouthfeel is just about where it should be I think. Highly drinkable. The more saisons I drink, the more I like the style, and this one has helped to further my appreciation. Near the end of the bottle, I poured in ALL the sediment at the bottom to see how it would be different. I felt it was slightly sweeter and smoother than what i had drank without. Keep in mind this was also the warmest I had drank this brew.

hazy light orange, fine white head, streaks of lace, lots of sweet spiced honey aroma with a strong mine character, lots of sweet honey flavor, balanced by the strong spices, a touch of sharp mint, very unique but very weird as well

JohnnyJ (5402) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2007
2006 bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with fairly large white head (slightly fizzy). The aroma is great. A variety of grains, malt, spice, and complex hints of honey and funk. Flavors are sweet and slightly sour. Yeasty, grain, wheat, honey, spice, lemon, and a bit of banana. Quite good, or maybe its been to long since I’ve had a saison.

scotty (1151) - SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2007
A tiny 25cl bottle, slightly hazy and no head, so loses a couple of points for that. The nose is quite delicate, and there is a hint of honey, nice! Surprisingly, the palate is pretty dry, I was expecting a sweetish brew but thankfully not! Remarkably refreshing, with a lingering finish. A Ronnie beer.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Slightly hazy, almost clear golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and floral. Flavor starts sweet and fruity (white grape and light citrus) followed by some peppery spice and a tangy, light dry finish. Medium body is smooth with champange like carbonation.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2007
A golden apperance with a rather large head. A spicy lemon filled aroma is present. The flavor is a mixture of sweet and sour with a strong dose of honey coming through. I also taste some lemons and apricots. Some spices present in the finish. Overall this was pretty good.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 13, 2007
750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of honey, grain, mild barn yard funk, and yeast. The taste can best be described as what you would expect a honey saison to taste like. Bready/yeasty some what tart honey flavor. Decent.

Ratman197 (13278) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2007
750 ml bottle poured a cloudy maize with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of honey, fruitiness, spice and light banana. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of honey, spice and light banana with a smooth semisweet finish.
